Hello:

For years I used the Microsoft Excel Developer's forum and was a contributor.  The URL for that forum was https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home?forum=exceldev. Why did that go away?  I lost all my contributor points!

 

Please let me know.

Regards,

Rich Locus

Many of us deplore this step.

 

This forum (Tech Community) is a lot better than Q&A, in my opinion.

 

(You still have all your points on MSDN/Technet but they won't be transferred to Tech Community or Q&A)
